The Museum&Gallery Club has officially begun! We’ll be taking kids to one contemporary art galleries or museums once a month, and talking about the art they see there… We had our first visit recently!
We took the club members to the Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai to view the exhibition of Olympic Posters, which came all the way from The V&A in London. I took the kids through the exhibition, and talked about the gorgeous posters, the history of the games, and the meanings behind the images. They all solved their worksheets and then we had a postermaking session… They imagined that the Olympics were going to be held in Mumbai and created a mascot for the games, which they used in the posters.
Some of my adult students came along and sketched some of the sculptures in the museum sculpture garden.
